In clean-up and take-stock mode right now, with last week's market now behind me. It was a great market evening - lovely to receive affirming feedback from the friendly Made 'n Thornbury market goers (as well as several dear friends who visited - thanks guys).
Had a good (much needed!) studio clean-up this week and recycled some clay, so nearly ready to start making again. It feels good - out with the old, make space for the new!
Seeing as I had a big photo-taking session before market day I thought this was also the perfect time to get a few more images up here of finished works (some of which have now found new homes).
|coil built vase with stencilled iron slip|
|iron slip stencilled beakers|
|iron slip stencilled little beakers/sake cups?|
|more slip stencilling ... experimenting with green stained slip and handles|
|little bowls for salt or whatever... they also serve as glaze experiments|
|more surface experimentation on a pinched vessel|
|little pinched and carved vase|
|coil built vessels with carved designs and iron oxide rubbed surfaces - both these have some little cracks that opened up between coils in the bisque firing... past posts have shown these in progress|
